. they have tended to come in bunches. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who leaves. >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilities, the probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often are surprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as predicted. sure there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surprised by chief justice roberts' vote
, former specialist assistant to george w. bush, ron christine joining us, and freedom watch president, bush staffer, brad blakeman. brad, good to have you with us. brad, starting, if i may, with you. this is becoming an unwieldy weight for the administration. surely, they understand how urgent it is that the record be set straight and soon. >> well, here's where the cover up begins. they are trying to cover tracks by saying initially the intelligent services told them it was a spoon tape yows attack, but the key questions, lou, is what did the president know? when did he know it? when did the narrative change? did the president ask questions? was he briefed in person? or rely on paper reports? one thing is for sure, lou, and that's this. if this happened in new york, if one of the ambassadors picked off the streets in new york and the consulate in new york to the u.n. was damaged like in libya, there would have been hell to pay. what's the difference between where our ambassadors picked off by terrorist terrorists whether the votes of new york or benghazi. how is it possible the admin
that in 1984, reagan's first debate was a disaster. george w. bush's debate was a disaster. i don't think it will be a disaster. but you saw on the univision interview. when you are abe incumbent president you are not used to being challenged. bill: what do you think the impact of a potential exchange like we just watched will have on this 15% rasmussen is talking about? >> rich is right. it depends on what it is. there was another debate moment in 2008 that seemed to change the trajectory a little bit. remember when hillary was told people don't like her and she said that hurts my feelings and it was kind of like funny, self-deprecating moment, and it seemed to move women voters in a way. you can't ever really know. there could just be some sort of moment that moves people in a certain direction, though. i think the bigger issue is mitt romney making people feel like i'm a goodall tern tough to obama. you are not that happy with him or you wouldn't be undecide or persuadable. but i'm safe. i'm somebody you can trust with the future. bill: the audience is enormous. 50 million americans wi
, in 2008, we came off of 8 years of george bush and the faith based community has embraced george bush and had someone been disappointed with some the effects of that. then we had john mccain who really never came out and endorsed the faith community at all. and then we had a president elected and all of us were excited. i was excited with the hope and change message. hoping some good things happen. i vote for democrats. i vote for republicans. i was excited about that. after four years, looking at issues like same sex marriage, all of the life issues which the president does not stand for, and you see religious liberty being attacked as never before in this country. the faith-based community now understands what the alternative is is. and we understand that mitt romney, while some have said well, he is a mormon he is not an evangelical may not be the candidate of our religious choice, i can say with a surety that he aligns with family values, with the same sex marriage values, with the life values much more with the evangelical community than this president does. >> dr. mark smith, yo
our last ceo president. george w. bush. after all of this, he did not have a nervous breakdown. for the last four years, right now he is a man as far as i am concerned, anyone wanting to vote republican, they're looking for nuclear war with iran. if you want to send your kids oversees to die for reasons that you and i will not understand, i am sticking with my man, barack obama. host: "the wall street journal" has this graph about democracy and violence. host: they have some key words comparing this year with last year. freedom is one of them. 15 times mentioned in this speech, last year it was 17. democracy mentioned 13 times in this speech, 31 year ago. violence, 13 times yesterday, 31 year ago. dawn is on the line from new haven, connecticut. good morning. caller: i know that the topic is foreign, but i wanted to just say that barack obama has always said that his favorite president is abraham lincoln. i have a quote from abraham lincoln, can i read it? host: yes. caller: you cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong, you cannot bring about prosperity by discouragin
was in a white house with george herbert walker bush. he took that brief every day. george w. bush took it every day. i believe that bill clinton took it every day. this president thinks he's smarter than those guys and doesn't have to engage in the discussion. that's the most important half hour of the day for a president who has to protect the security of the united states. >> george herbert walker bush did not hold any bilateral meetings of the united nations in 1992. >> bill: wait a minute. hang on a second. joe, joe, this is what you're missing. the president of the united states is lying to the families of four dead americans. >> he is not lying. he's not lying. >> bill: if this was a spontaneous attack, they happened to have in their back pocket rocket-propelled grenade, if it wasn't a planned, orchestrated attack? they happened to have a mortar round in their back pocket that they were firing at the embassy? >> sean, sean -- >> bill: wait a minute. why were the -- >> sean, wait for me for a second. when libya fell, when the government collapsed, there were thousands and thousands of rpgs
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
: you're so right. the up and down glance is so george bush as everybody came to know him in the years to come. thank you very much, nick. the best moments the unscripted ones. >> good chatting with you. >> martha: we'll see what happens tonight's. so we've got new letters that we want to talk to you about that are revealing stunning information about what happened before the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. katherine herrage has brand-new information and a look at these documents which you need to stick around for, very important development, that's coming up next. and also we promised this story has a happy ending, folks. the dog gets stuck in the grill of a car for 11 miles. i kid you not. stick around. we'll be right back. more "fox & friends" >> announcer: meet jill. she thought she'd feel better after seeing her doctor. and she might have, if not for kari, the identity thief who stole jill's social security number to open credit cards, destroying jill's credit and her dream of retirement. now meet amanda. with a swipe of her debit card, she bought some gas... and an all-e
romney than i was john mccain. i thought john mccain was just an extension of george bush. we had had enough of that. >> brown: but polls show enthusiasm remains a question mark here for mitt romney and for the president. he also has to worry about criticism from his left. people like duke economics professor william garretty who cites the almost one in five blacks out of work here and says the president simply hasn't done enough to help. >> that's pretty staggering actually. i mean, we're approaching the kinds of unemployment rates that existed in the united states at the height of the great depression. in the african-american community in north carolina. >> brown: he has decided to sit out the presidential vote >> i'm going to vote for the other offices on the ballot but i'm just not going to cast a vote for the presidency >> brown: you're not? no brown: you feel okay i feel okay about it. my wife tells me i'm crazy. >> ready to go brown: no doubt octave i can't rainy thinks he's crazy too >> you have to vote for people who support our issues. >> brown: a community organizer working
and then 2000 where al gore was seen as sighing and sort of dismissive of then texas governor george bush. so when you asked jen and barbara whether they were giving their candidates advice on things that are aesthetic, they should be. >> that's what we all remember, right, do you wear the gray suit on black and white tv, nixon. let me ask this, because you've done a lot of work on this. super pacs and the candidates are competing for money, which a lot of people might not realize. but the campaign can cover whatever it wants with the money, the super pac not linked to the campaign at all so not ideal for the campaign. the romney campaign, $86 million raised. the pro romney super pac, $41 million. and american ross kroeds, affiliate with karl rove, $58.7 million. so you can add that up and get a big number or say if karl rove doesn't like how mitt romney does tomorrow night, he could give a lot of that $60 million, the biggest chunk of change, to, i don't know, senate candidates, congressional candidates, and not romney. >> that's right, erin. there are a lot of republicans and democrats who
. if you looked at in 2004, george bush running against a decorated war hero in john kerry and had a similar margin. it seems romney has been doing everything in his power to cut the margin whether insulting veterans by his 47% remark or for getting the troops in his mention speech. >> heather: you say like it is a given veterans in the military vote would go to republicans and we shouldn't be surprised by this. yet, in 2008 president obama won virginia specifically the first time a democrat had won that state in 44 years. he also won all of the other states we mentioned in our introduction, colorado, florida, ohio and virginia what is president obama doing wrong in time around? >> he's not doing anything wrong. you are right, win virginia last time. i believe he will win it again this time. he does have a lead in that state in most polls. the one area where he's behind is the veteran vote. he's running even with white males against romney, if you take out the veterans vote. >> heather: that veteran vote is significant. trey, veterans are a high turn-out demographic concentrated in
-1980s. the drug war was at its height. then-vice president george bush headed up a task force to fight the problem. >> we have got to do better in interducting it. >> reporter: in miami, cocaine is found hidden in commercial jets, flowers, even boxes of yams. problem is, some aren't yams at all, rather plaster casts painted and shaped like yams. inside, pure coke. stash houses and drug will be as are routinely raided. that was a war on drugs. these days, it's not even a war of words. the white house doesn't even call it a war any longer, focusing more on prevention. and in this political season, the issue of illicit drugs rarely gets a mention on the campaign trail. when it does come up, president obama and mitt romney appear to be on the same page. >> the president of the united states must make a priority of reducing demand. >> the united states can focus on drug treatment and prevention. >> absolutely. i agree with that. >> reporter: if anyone should know it is judge giselle powell, presiding in drug court in broward county, florida. the idea, you get clean, you avoid the criminal r
george w. bush, and it is up for the president to understand. it is not where we wanted to be. this is the time to understand who has a plan for the future, because elections are always about the future. given his record i have more confidence president obama can get that done then governor romney. >> you can see this discussion at 8:00 p.m. eastern. now a look at spending ads from the annenberg policy center. this is 45 minutes. >> i am the editorial communications director of the center for responsive politics, and we are here to talk about the challenges posed to journalists by dark money and their mysterious donors. erica is joining me. she is an assistant director, director of the media project, which tracks of political ads aired in real time during i will talk a little more about what we are seeing in third- party assetds and how reporters contrite to report on this and what can be done if congress or some of the agency's wanted to make this easier for us, and kathleen wanted to meet with us to talk about their findings, third-party money and how much is being spent on
image at this point and one of them lost, george h.w. bush. and romney needs to improve that dynamic. >> reporter: romney got good news from three battlegrounds. in florida he is now behind by just one point. still way down in ohio. but in virginia, romney is down by just two. with a lot on the line in past debates, romney is doing well. >> going up against mitt romney is not a fun thing. he has the fax. he drills you. he stays. he is tenacious. >> reporter: and sometimes aggressive. >> the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. don't use a term like that. >> reporter: aides admit barack obama in debates can sound like a professorial no-it-all. >> i understand the broader point that senator clinton has been trying to make over the last several weeks. >> reporter: tonight's format is from 2008. two podiums, moderator jim lehrer, 90 minutes, no breaks. a back and forth on domestic issues with possible fireworks. >> i think you're going to see both of them actually be more aggressive than either of their campaigns have predicted because the stakes are pretty high. >> reporter: the c
. deputy chief of staff for president george w. bush. a fox news contributor. good morning to you in washington. i want to analyze this from two fronts, the administration and how mitt romney does or does not capitalize on this. from the administration what explains the response that has gone out so far in the past two weeks? >> it is inexplicable. even the president recently on "the view" couple days ago continued to pin the murder on the ambassador on trailer for anti-islamic film when all the evidence points towards a terrorist attack, planned to occur on 9/11. i mean, look, the president of libya said so. the director of the national counterterrorism center said so. the intelligence community pointed in that direction. chairman of the house intelligence committee pointed in that direction. why the president contends to suggest this has something to do with offensive video and not a deliberate attempt to kill our u.s. ambassador is beyond me. there is lot to be gained by stepping up being the president. there is not a lot gained by look being like you're offering up excuse why
he was trying to say is that the middle class was buried urntd george w. bush and that's what started the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this isoming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a
